Frequently Asked Questions About Upholstery and Fine Fabric Cleaning


How much does it cost to have a sofa cleaned?


The cost of cleaning a sofa depends on its size. Loveseats naturally cost less to clean than a large sectional. If you need additional treatments like Scotchgard or deodorizing, that will increase the cost as well.


How long will it take my furniture to dry?


In general, it takes about 5 to 7 hours for most furniture to dry completely. Keep in mind that different fabrics will dry at different rates. And, if you live in a humid climate – or it just happens to be a humid day – you will find that it takes a bit longer.


How can furniture odors impact the air quality in your home?


Different scents in the air, such as toxins and chemicals from a home renovation project or odors from cooking can rest in the fabric. So can body odor and pet odor. And, it’s no secret – fabrics hold odors. Over time, the buildup of all the odors can impact the quality of the air you breathe in your home.

Covering it up with air fresheners is only adding more chemicals into the air — and it will eventually lose its effectiveness. Having your furniture cleaned professionally, however, can freshen the air once and for all. And it is a much healthier alternative for your family.


What is the best way to clean a fabric sofa?


The best way to clean a fabric sofa is by hiring a professional upholstery cleaner. Doing it yourself may damage the fabric, cause pilling, leave water stains, or create conditions for mold to grow in the cushions of your sofa.


How often should upholstery be cleaned?


It’s recommended that upholstery receives professional cleaning at least once a year. If you have pets, small children, or allergies, you may need to have your upholstery cleaned more often.


Is upholstery cleaning worth it?


Yes, upholstery cleaning is worth the cost. By having your furniture cleaned regularly, you’ll be extending its life, which saves you money in the long-term. Regular upholstery cleaning also ensures that you have a healthier home.


Can’t I just clean the upholstery myself?


There are DIY methods online that will show you how to clean upholstery. Unfortunately, not all fabrics are the same – and you could end up doing even more harm than good.

Professional cleaning is intensive and works deeply within heavy fabrics to ensure that they look fantastic while also extending their life. So, while you may think you are saving money with DIY versions, you are not getting the same type of thorough cleaning — and you will likely find yourself buying new furniture sooner than you intended.


How can I prepare for my upholstery cleaning?


There are a few things you can do to get ready for your upholstery cleaning. For instance, you will want to remove the clutter on and around the furniture so it can be easily accessed. And, if possible, pull the furniture away from the wall so that it can be tended to from all sides.

If you have any pets – especially those that sit or jump on your furniture – you will want to have alternate accommodations for them until the furniture is dry.

Finally, you will also want to make a note of any concerns or blemishes, as well as any questions you’d like to ask while the professional team is at your house.
